The Digital Principal shows educational leaders how to apply their leadership skills to the challenge of creating and supporting a technology-rich environment. From digital citizenship to connecting to the digital community to accessing digital and virtual worlds, this book establishes a framework for integrating technology into instruction and learning. It includes technology standards specific to educational administrators, a survey testing a school's Technology Quotient (its readiness to embrace both the digital principle and the digital principal), tips for writing grants to improve a school's technology resources, and ways to help teachers facilitate technology-based student learning.
